Aston Microphone Tooling

Why the tooling design and manufacturing concept was so important:-

“A microphone is not just a functional tool. It is a musical instrument, and the very heart of every recording you will ever make.
So, when we set about developing a new microphone brand, it was critically important to us that our final ‘sound’ was something which would not only ‘do the job’, but which would also inspire the confidence of the artist, the producer or the engineer, to get the very best performances possible.
Right from the start of ‘project Aston’, we worked with a group of top audio professionals, creating a unique sound development panel to be our ears, while we focussed on perfecting every tiny detail in these crafted works of arts, to finally produce what we believe to be the very best products in their class.”

Example of the assembled microphone.


The zinc diecastings have be cast, clipped and then put through our glass bead blasting equipment to produce a natural product with the highest standards of cosmetic finish.   Everyone was proud of this, even Stevie Wonder sang its praises !
